Andrea Parrish and Peter Geyer wanted a nice wedding, but they didn't think they could save even the $3,800 they needed for a modest affair for 150 guests.
So they decided to raise the money by recycling aluminum cans -- 400,000 of them.
They'll say their "I dos" July 31 in Spokane, Wash., with their goal met, thanks to a little help from their friends, 1,487 Facebook fans, 247 Twitter followers, a blog and a media blitz that told their story from New Zealand to Italy.
Their quest has inspired several other couples to collect aluminum cans to pay for their weddings, as well as for other causes, including a service dog and a liver transplant.

swoją droga przypomniał mi sie stary dowcip z czasów boomu .comowego
Three beggars are begging in New York City. The first one wrote "beg" on his broken steel cup. After one day he had received ten bucks.
The second one wrote "beg.com" on his cup. After one day he had received hundreds of thousand of dollars. Someone even wanted to take him to NASDAQ.
The third one wrote "eBeg" on his cup. Both IBM and HP sent vice-presidents to talk to him about a strategic alliance and offered him free hardware and professional consulting. Larry Ellison claimed on CNBC that eBeg uses 95% Oracle technology. i2 announced begTradeMatrix, a b2b industry portal to offer supply chain integration in the beggar market. Cisco just announced that virtually all eBeg traffic runs over their equipment.
